The 'Champagne Papi' was out and about in Bim again today.

This time the well-known celebrity rapper from Canada, Drake paid a visit to the former home of Bajan superstar Rihanna. 

Just before 6 pm, the megastar and his entourage pulled up on Rihanna Drive, formerly Westbury New Road, in three Range Rovers. When the 'God’s Plan' crooner emerged from the first Range, he caused a stir of excitement as residents flocked to get a glimpse of the 'Controller' singer.

With mask fully in place, the star chatted and mingled with those who gathered.

One resident described the star as "humble" as he indulged all those who requested pictures with him. During his visit, Drake even signed Rihanna’s fan book which is a special edition left with the community by the popstar for tourists and fans who come to visit her former home.

The two singers went their separate ways back in 2016 but Drake was not shy in expressing his love for Rihanna even after they split. Rihanna’s brother, Rorrey Fenty, was seen among the entourage touring with Drake today.

From other pictures posted on Twitter, Drake toured more of the island yesterday, landing at Folkestone Marine Park in St James. While there he paused a game of basketball to pose for pictures with adoring fans. In one pic he embraces a fan snugly and she comments, “It’s how we look like besties,” with a huge smile of contentment plastered across her face.

The international singer arrived in the island aboard his private jet as the island received its first commercial flights on Sunday (July 12).
